Recruiting notebook: North Carolina QB target chooses TCU over Tar Heels and LSU

Two four-star prospects, who had North Carolina among their top choices, have decided to go elsewhere.

Justin Rogers, one of the top dual-threat quarterbacks in the country, announced he will go to TCU. The 6-4, 203-pound four-star class of 2018 prospect from Louisiana, announced on Wednesday his commitment live on a local television station, according to nola.com.

Rogers, who is ranked No. 6 at his position, and No. 91 overall, according to 247sport’s composite rankings, chose TCU over North Carolina and LSU.

Tre Turner, a 6-4, 175-pound four-star wide receiver, announced on Twitter Wednesday that he was committing to Virginia Tech.

Turner is ranked No. 30 at his position and No. 153 overall in the class of 2018. He plays for Northwest Guilford High School in Greensboro. He caught 52 passes for 1,065 yards and 12 touchdowns during his junior season, according to MaxPreps.

The Tar Heels have five commitments from the class of 2018, including Bryson Richardson, who committed on Wednesday. Richardson, 6-1, 190-pound safety from Buford, Ga., announced via Twitter that he was committing to the Tar Heels.

Richardson is a three-star prospect. He had committed to Tennessee last year, but rescinded his commitment in January. He ranks as the 67th best safety in the country.
